Unfortunately the 2020 Lancelin Ocean Classic will not take place in 2020.
A number of issues arose outside the control of the organisers and with insufficient time and funding to resolve these issues, the Lancelin Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) have decided to cancel the event.
The organisers have stated, “After 34 years of successful events we are fully aware and understand the decision will not be favorable so we apologise to our stakeholders, sponsors, community partners, accommodation providers, sailors and the public. The LCCI will now reassess and re-evaluate their options going forward in consultation with stakeholders, industry groups and community groups.
All 2020 online registration fees will be reimbursed in full and we will work with the online registration provider to have this managed as soon as possible.
For the kite surfers who opted to leave their 2019 entry fee in credit for the 2020 and now look to seek reimbursement of $75 please contact email@example.com with your address, contact number and banking details.
The Chamber will endeavour to run this iconic event for 2021 pending circumstances and ensure plenty of notice is given prior to the race.
Once again please accept our sincere apologies for the short notice and for any inconvenience caused.”
This is sad news for the town as it drew many hundreds of competitors and visitors. And while the Tavern won’t have their normal After-Party they will have a family day and a band in the evening with no cover charge.
